PREP BOYS GOLF: Focused Falcons roll to crown

Hochstedler’s medalist effort helps Fairfield win comfortably on Saturday

KENDALLVILLE — The conference tournament is a great place for a team to shoot its best score of the season and that is exactly what the Fairfield Falcons did Saturday in the NECC meet at Noble Hawk Golf Links.

Led by individual medalist Zach Hochstedler with a 1-under par 34-36—70, the Falcons posted a team score of 304 to finish ahead of second-place Lakeland at 319. Angola was third at 322, followed by Churubusco 333, Fremont 339, West Noble 346, Westview 351, Hamilton 356, Central Noble 360, Prairie Heights 382 and Eastside 390.

“A 304 is our best score of the season,” Fairfield coach Rand Schrock said. “The key was the boys went out and played golf the way they are supposed to. Coming in I felt we could be in the top three, but I wasn’t sure we could win.

“I think Zach (Hochstedler) has finally decided to let the game come to him. He took advantage of the holes where he could.”

Hochstedler had three birdies in his round.

“I played pretty solid, hitting a lot of fairways and greens,” he said. “I also made some key putts.”

Hochstedler was in the same foursome as the individual runner up, Austin Corcimiglia of Fremont who carded a 32-39—71.

Corcimiglia birdied the first three holes.

“It was nice to be in the same group with him,” Hochstedler said.

“He got off to a good start before having some problems on the back nine.

“It feels pretty good to be the best in the conference.”

Also for Fairfield, Jordan Davidhizar shot 35-38—73, Jacob Fry 41-37—78, Andrew Hoover 42-41—83 and Rainer Brow 44-46—90.

“I was very impressed with Hoover’s 83,” Schrock said.

“That’s his lowest round in varsity competition and he had an eight on No. 9.”

According to Hoover he had an 83 in a JV tournament at Lake James.

“I’m not really sure where this came from,” Hoover said.

“I didn’t really have any great shots, but also didn’t have any really bad ones. I did have a birdie on No. 4. I hit a 5-wood off the tee, my approach shot was close to the pin and I made the putt.”

Lakeland was led by Cody Richardson 37-38—75 and Spencer Mortola 35-41—76.

“My thinking was a score of 315 to 320 would get you in the ballpark,” Lakeland coach John Roush said. “But Fairfield shot lights out. Not too many teams have a 1-2 punch at the top of the lineup like they do.

“Conditions were near perfect today. There was not a lot of wind until around 2 p.m. and by then the leaders were past the toughest parts of the course.”

Mortola’s round featured six birdies, three on each side.
